Wow, if only Twin Snakes could look this good.

Yeah, but it would seem TS isn't really meant to be a technology showcase for the GCN. Still, if they are remaking the graphics it would have been nice if they went completely all out. Oh well, it still looks very nice.

I'll only say I'm looking forward more towards TS than this game. From the name to the previews I've seen, the game really looks so utterly... cheesy... I'm hoping it's just the previews, since it's obvious they were specially made to BE previews rather than actual parts of the game. Still, did they need to have the movie cut to snake eating a raw fish 3 times in a row, and then some other times later on with snakes and a croc? Okay, I GET it, you have to eat to live! That better not be the MAIN aspect of the game. Also, that song just sounds like a cheesy James Bond song. I loved the song in MGS1, and I enjoyed the song in MGS2 (though not as much as the MGS1 song), but this is just silly. Finally, it's nice that not a bit of story was revealed, but maybe at least a little should have been so I could at least know one is there. Sure the gameplay is the most important thing, and I would have enjoyed MGS regardless, but going from having two great stories to having almost no story at all except to move one forward would really suck. I mean, I trust Kojima enough that I'll assume the story is actually very good and he's just hiding everything, but that preview really doesn't do anything to help.

At any rate, one thing I'm humoring is the idea that, much like the soap-opera-esque melodramatics of MGS2, this sort of over-the-top action looking stuff going on, at least in the previews, is actually meant to make a serious point about human nature and have some really deep impact on the player.

Haha, that Bond-like trailer was very much tongue-in-cheek. The other trailers are more serious.

More jaw-dropping MGS3 screens.

Seriously, unless you've never played MGS before how could you not want this game more than Twin Snakes? They're actually doing innovative things this time around! The whole camo system is very, cery cool, and then there's the whole stamina/eating aspect which completely changes the way you have to tackle the game. I'm also so relieved about the environment change. Forests, mountains, snowy areas (okay so maybe that last one isn't new, but the way you play in it will be), and most likely more. I can't stand playing through the same cold, blue setting over and over.

Nice.

Amazing what Konami can do with the PS2 hardware, eh?

The only problem I see is some of those ground textures... but for a PS2 that is very impressive. I just have to wonder about the framerate...

OB1
The ground textures are still better than Twin Snake's. And I expect to see a good framerate from Konami. MGS2 got a smooth 60 fps. If worse comes to worse maybe we'll get a constant 30. Still good.
